Hey Carolyn, after talking to you about the MORA and BioResonance I also talked to the people at BICOM. In the end I decided to purchase their device – they say they are the original BioResonance but their device was quite expensive. Why does OIRF only recommend the MORA? Is it because you have a distributorship for Med-Tronik?


Thanks for this question which really covers a lot of different things. First, I am sorry to hear that you chose BICOM over MORA, and I know that eventually you will come back to MORA for greater effectiveness and the innovative r&d. The marketing tactics of the Regumed/BICOM company are quite aggressive and most frequently attempt to devalue Med-Tronik/MORA as a way of building up the value of their own device. But that is a whole different topic of conversation and I’ll be happy to talk to you by phone again to discuss it.

Within our newsletter, rather than discussing any one device, “competitor” or German company let me turn instead to a more general description of the Institute’s instrumentation policies.

As with everyone – even though the Institute is a registered non-profit organization – we still have to pay the bills. With declining and now eliminated membership funding, our major fund raising activities necessary to continue our research, publication and education activities are:

  • sales of educational materials
  • sponsorship of conferences
  • sponsorship of the annual Germany tours.
  • sales of instrumentation

Despite the fact that all instrumentation sales are done on a not-for-profit basis (usually less than German export prices), clearly instrumentation sales are our biggest income source. Our longtime reputation of being the ‘consumer reports’ for Biological Medicine, has been earned by ensuring our recommendations are accurate. We have investigated and researched hundreds of devices, methods and organizations over the years, and then assisted our members to obtain those methods and devices that we found most effective.

Our recommendations are based on a number of strict criteria, such as:

  • Is this device/method effective?
  • Can it be applied by all practitioners?
  • Is it reliable?
  • Is it fairly priced?
  • Can it be safely imported to the USA/Canada?
  • Is the manufacturer able to offer efficient delivery and service?
  • Is the international manufacturer able to communicate and work with the Institute fairly and efficiently?
  • Is there a religious or political ownership of the company that will affect legitimate and business dealings with the Institute and/or our members?
  • Is the device long lived – with minimum to moderate service needs?
  • And so on . . .

For those methods or devices which fully meet our standards, we then – and only then – seek to obtain appropriate distributorship arrangements. [And – as an aside – if we choose not to recommend a particular device such as BICOM, it is usually due to an inherent failure to fulfill one or more of our above criteria.] Often we even made arrangements for our members to order directly from the company in Germany (like with AMS). In this way we have assured our members of the best possible prices for the greatest value, and we have always been here to assist with training, service, support and assistance.
